Based in Switzerland
Cold winds are howling through the abandoned caverns of Nangrim. This forsaken place seems to hold nothing good for those daring to pass. Now it’s your mission to survive down in the depths of this ancient dwarven mountain city and find out what happened to the Stonebeards on their last days. 'Arafinn – Return to Nangrim' is a first-person fantasy game which involves exploration, research & crafting, puzzle solving and defense strategies in order to unveil the secrets and tales that wove themselves around the once so glorious Stonebeards.
Co-owned by two Zurich-based engineers with a passion for immersive alternate reality gaming, Sycoforge Games is today an interdisciplinary team of engineers, mathematicians, artists, and creative architects in Switzerland. Working out of their uniquely and originally curated gaming universe, Arafinn, where never-before-heard languages and units of measurement are used, Sycoforge Games has been developing the Arafinn Universe since 2009.
The work on the first installment 'Arafinn - Return to Nangrim' began in late 2016.
